What is Voice Recognition Scam?




Voice Recognition scams which wiped off several hundreds out of people’s bank balances are now creeping in, into UK.  Voice Recognition uses voice signatures to charge you for products and services, and it is perfectly legal if you subscribe to it. However this Voice Recognition Payment has created a huge loophole for scammers’ action.

How Voice Recognition Work

You get a phone call from a local number,  the person on the phone will introduce himself, his products and or services. The person then will ask you a very direct question, ‘ CAN YOU HEAR ME?’ Your answer is recorded. If you say ‘YES’, your response can be edited, and subsequently use in purchases of goods and services that you know nothing about.  Your voice recording can also be tendered as evidence of an agreement to the transaction.

Of course, for scammers to be able to lay hold on you paying for goods and services, will target you for others too, like laying hold on card details and other useful IDs like your (DOB), and residential address.  The scammers are ready to delay getting these useful information about you on delay tactics.  That is, once they have your voice recorded saying ‘YES’, they can look for an avenue to get others, like your address and card details. A good example of this is offering a sample product, and asking that you only pay for the postage. If you agree to this, both you address and card details are then at their disposal.

How to protect yourself from Voice Recognition Scam

If you ever get any such call, and the person ask you ‘CAN YOU HEAR ME?’  don’t give any direct question like ‘YES’, you can say, ‘I CAN HEAR YOU CLEARLY’. Needless to say, just hang up the phone after that. And you must remember not to say ‘YES’ on the phone during phone conversation to telemarketers, especially to anyone you do not know.

Do not agree to test product samples that you will have to pay for the postage. You might think you are having a bargain, but the actual motive here is getting your bank details and or residential address. to further defraud you. Indeed, let caution be your watch word.



Top reasons why some fail in online business





Despite the huge success in online business for vast majority of people, some still experience failure. Here are the top reasons this is so:

Lack of confidence

Some people lack that confidence both in themselves and in the business. This could be due to inadequate preparation and lack of objective, direction and goal.

This also has to deal with low self esteem, negative attitude and mindset.

Some people cannot deal with failures, not realising that failures is actually part of success, good if you learn from the failure and take it as part of success.

Lack of patient

Most people who fail in online business lack the perseverance in online business. It takes time for the business to work. It is definitely a ‘get-rick quick’ one, so your focus must be on long term one. Online business is one of slow-growth business in the world, so you must be prepared to ditch your ‘get-rich quick’ mentality for a slow, but steady and sustainable growth. Do  not cut corners, not short term loopholes, but rather long term sustainable strategy.

Lack of commitment

Most do not realise the huge commitment for online business to succeed, and that it does require real hard work. Without real commitment and hard work, that success will be elusive. Rather have a realistic goal, and plan of action to follow through.

There can be lack of motivation for success. To succeed online, one needs to be driven by purpose, and be hungry for success, and never give up, even under very tough business situation.

Find a mentor

People try to do things in the way they believe or hope things will work out.  This unfortunately does not work in online business.

Always read others review on such products. Better to be focus and allow minimum distraction. Changes are constant, so be ready to adapt and accept changes that come with innovation. Be creative and have basic common sense and intelligence.
